Autism Understanding Scotland

Autism Understanding Scotland's primary goal is to provide good quality information about autism. We do this in a variety of ways; 1:1 support for local families and individuals, training, webinars which are open to anyone anywhere, our online Autism Information Hub, consulting services, hosting Autistic Pride and Autism Acceptance campaigns and more.

All our front facing staff are autistic ourselves and we all have a huge variety in both lived and professional experience, some of us are parents, some are not.

We know that receiving a diagnosis of autism for yourself or a loved one can be daunting, but we also know that autistic people are amazingly unique individuals capable of growth just like everyone else.

We also know the language to describe autism has traditionally been less than positive, and our motto here is that we are reframing the narrative around autism.

Being autistic brings both challenges and strengths. Our team of autistic autism professionals are here to help others work out fact from fiction, develop strategies to make life more manageable, and to help both accept and embrace autistic identity.
